Pádraic Nally: After the Headlines - RTE2 9.30pm

Might be interesting. You would think he has been through enough without having to suffer Charlie Bird.

Quote:
Charlie Bird revisits the story of a Co Mayo farmer who shot a trespasser dead in 2004, investigating whether the case is still as divisive as it was at the time. Despite being sentenced to six years in prison for the manslaughter of traveller John Ward, Padraic Nally had his conviction quashed 11 months later after maintaining he acted in self-defence.

Charlie Bird really likes to get himself on camera.

Walking to the Station, getting on the train, sitting on the train ...

Really was a huge story at the time though, wasn't it? You'd forget about it til it all surfaces like this again.

They could do with going over the facts here, like how many times he was shot, and how far from the house.
